Here is another one of those special videos especially for the youngsters but the elders are welcome to join them as once again we have somebody helping others in distress in this instance children.
It tells how the children in an orphanage are woken up on Christmas morning ,when one of them is licked by a puppy and shouts out ‘Merry Christmas’everybody.They all jump out of their beds and make their way to the hall, singing and dancing to the title song ‘Christmas Comes But Once A Year’. They take the toys from their stockings and get ready to play with them but discover the terrible truth that the toys are old, worn and already broken, completely falling apart when played with. The children are so sad and burst into tears over losing them and having no other Christmas presents.

As this is happening a neighbour Professor Grampy is passing and hears the children in distress, so he parks his sleigh and runs to the door and looks through the window to see all the children in tears.
Grampy feels distressed for them and starts to think of a way to give the orphans a better Christmas. He puts on his "thinking cap" and very quickly the lightbulb on his cap blinks, meaning he has an idea. He sneaks in through the kitchen window and starts making new toys out of household appliances, furniture, and other kitchen items. While the orphans are still crying in the dormitory, Grampy dresses up as Santa Claus and taking a dinner bell surprises the orphans by ringing it and shouting, "Merry Christmas, everybody!" The orphans brighten up instantly, stop crying, and all rush out excitedly to play with their new toys. Grampy then makes a Christmas tree out of green umbrellas, which he places on top of a phonograph turntable, decorates it, gathers all the orphans together and they all sing the song one last time.

Singing supercharges the endorphins - those "feel good" chemicals so great for healing!

Thank you, Tony and friends for this awesome Journey. I so enjoyed it and still have some listens to hear. Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year.

Hello friends. Here is just one more song, which I send to all you worldly warblers, your families and friends, a message which is very clear and needs no explaining. I also send this especially to all the youngsters, who I am sure will enjoy the way Celine Dion is joined by many friends as she sings this very special song “Happy Christmas"(War Is Over).
Lots of Luv.

Thank you Tony for being such a great host, and thank you every one for all your kind comments, have loved being with you all once again, look forward to our next journey

Happy Christmas and here's to a wonderful New Year for all of us


Reply by APHGOLD

Hello dear friends, here are the Team Banners and Individual Awards for our Journey of Song and Dance, which really belong to you all.
With a mix of warblers from 15 countries it is impossible to get a fair balance for the teams, so the results are clear for all, to be a Number 1 Star team. For the individuals the top 15 from both ladies and gentleman have been taken, with a matter of 3 point splitting many others. Simply put, if you have enjoyed yourselves on the journey with words and music and dance, then you are certainly a real part of our travelling family of friends and I look forward to catching you another time.
Thank you all once again for your kind words, all your wonderful songs and clearing out the drinking tent.
The very best of everything that puts a smile on your faces, to you, your family and friends.
Take care.

Congratulations to the top scorers....and to everyone who participated til the end. As a judge I get to listen to you ALL at least once....and definitely try to listen to and read your entries as many rounds as I can manage....Too much to miss, otherwise...

Over the course of several journeys, I have discovered so much about the "regular" travelers, and I appreciate the value of knowing you ALL. How we were raised, and the situations we found ourselves in as children and young men and women are so universal and human, and help us understand ourselves a little better as well.
Our Health as we age...we share so much, and seem upbeat and content through it all and appreciative of heartfelt concerns. We REALLY ARE a nice bunch of people...

Song choices are fascinating...new songs, and longtime favorites...we share similar tastes....even though we come from so many different places. MUSIC is certainly a UNIVERSAL language. A good song, a lovely melody is a good song and lovely melody in whatever language we first hear it....and so charming in another language or sung with a different accent!

Stay Safe and BE WELL...WE will meet again soon for another Adventure that awaits us from the mind and auspices of our Gracious and ABLE Tour Guide, Tony... Thank you, Tony ...for such a wonderful platform for thought, song, and friendship.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year Celebration everyone....Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice...as well ...

Thanks again tony and crew for an amazing journey,I really enjoyed it,this may be one of my last contests for awhile as I have surgery coming up after the 19th,not sure of exact time but will put in my status once I do know...I usually don't ask for prayers for myself but I am a little uneasy about the surgery,I wasn't a bit afraid the last 3 times oddly enough but this one is different and more extensive recovery time..and I don't do well with anesthesia,it usually takes 24 hours or longer for me to wake up so I guess the prayers are for my family more then me as I don't want them to have to worry and I have been reassuring them I will be ok,I will see you all again after I am all healed,I most likely will be taking some time off from singsnap till I fully heal,thank you all for your friendship and letting us hear your beautiful voices
